About the property

One bedroom, Oceanfront Condo w/Panoramic view - Centrally Located On Kauai.

Kauai is a paradise filled with tropical colors, smells, and foods, combined with a temperate climate that enfolds you, invigorates you, and refreshes your senses as you wake each morning to an astounding variety of things to see, do, taste, and experience! Imagine yourself a part of this tropical fantasy world.

Welcome to Wailua Bay View, #208!

This condo is the realization of our dream to own property on the beautiful island of Kauai, and to be able to share this with others who share a desire for living life simply, and in an idyllic environment!

Our unit is located on the 2nd floor, and in the center of the complex, with an astounding beach & ocean view. This is not simply a hotel room, it is a apartment-sized condo, equipped with a king-sized bed, (a queen-sized inflatable bed is also available), cable television, WiFi router, a washer/dryer, and bedroom A/C.

There is no daily maid service, however, the unit furnished with everything needed to make your stay carefree and enjoyable; a comfortable and completely outfitted condo. The condo is non-smoking, and no pets are allowed in the unit.

The pool has been remodeled with a beautiful tile mosaic bottom (turtles!), all new furniture, and two poolside gas barbecues. There is plenty of free parking in a well-lit parking lot.

We purchased this property in 2013 and refurbished the unit from top to bottom, adding new flat screen TVs, flooring, draperies, new lanai furniture, linens, kitchen amenities, cooler, pool toys, beach shelter, and more! Every room is carefully cleaned and refreshed after each guest, and we continually make improvements as we visit this paradise every year from the mainland.

During our November 2016 visit we thoroughly cleaned and "spruced up" the condo with some touch up painting. We also re-faced the kitchen and bathroom cabinets, which really brightened up both rooms! Linens are replaced yearly and all amenities are serviced each time we visit. We love this little condo, and hope that it shows!

The dining table & chairs are very comfortable for those (few) times you want to eat inside, (we prefer the lanai). The Visio sound bar is a "must have", because of the nearness to the ocean. It dramatically improves the sound quality of the flat screen TV in the living room, and provides a great way to listen to your favorite tunes via bluetooth. Instructions for doing this are included in our Guest Guide Book.

Road noise is no problem in this unit, due to the double-paned SOUNDPROOF inner window we installed in the bedroom. It slides opens for breezes, or closes tightly for a quiet night's sleep. The only sounds you'll hear are the ocean waves from the lanai!

The FABULOUS view and closeness to the ocean, as well as the lovely grounds and intimate feel of Wailua Bay View, combine to make this property a haven for visitors to Kauai - especially after a long day of exploring all the island has to offer!

Beautiful Kauai awaits you. Give us a try - you will be glad you did!

About David and Rita Ferguson

We live in western Washington state, (another beautiful spot), and in all of our travels, there is no more beautiful place to relax and unwind, than Kauai. This beautiful property is the realization of our lifelong dream to own a piece of paradise and, with our family now raised, we spend as much time here as possible.

We are 'hands-on' owners, dedicated to maintaining and improving this beautiful property, during our visits each year.

David and Rita Ferguson purchased this condo in 2013

Why David and Rita Ferguson chose Kapaa

What an incomparably lush and verdant tropical island! Kauai is the perfect vacation spot. . . especially at Wailua Bay View. The setting is intimate (only 45 units), and views of the ocean and "Sleeping Giant" cannot be beat! We love this place, and we want to share it with you!

Our central location on the island is perfect for travel destinations North or South, or simply exploring many attractions the East side has to offer. This facility is literally feet away from the beach, with an unobstructed view of the ocean and mountains to the south from our lanai.

Many shops and restaurants are easily within walking distance, including a farmers market (for local produce), and local entertainment (hula & music performances).

The location cannot be beat -- midway between the North (Hanalei) and South (Polihale) shores of Kauai makes our location the perfect stepping-off point for tourist attractions ranging from hiking, to romantic dinner cruises along the Napali Coast.

This is a oceanfront Kauai condo with a gorgeous panoramic view - paradise found, on a budget! Few properties on Kauai provide the unobstructed, and private ocean view that Wailua Bay View Apartments provide. Within the Wailua Bay View community there are very few units that can claim a full and panoramic view of the ocean, and unit #208 is one of those.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is well-stocked with all the items needed to ensure a comfortable, rejuvenating stay. The furnishings are clean, simple, and lovely; (and did we mention the view?). The ocean view is incomparable and speaks for itself.

Restaurants, shops, and services are within walking distance; this is an excellent location from which to embark upon your adventures anywhere on the island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a wonderful condo and the owners couldn’t have been more accommodating!

The first thing we noticed was how incredibly spotless the place is - it’s also very well equipped with everything that’s needed and is a decent size. All the rooms are nicely appointed size but most of all - the view is outstanding! What a lovely location with a stellar view - we loved it and would highly recommmend it to anyone.

We’ve been to Kauai many times - this is the first time we’ve stayed in Kapa’a and found it was easily accessible to get to other parts of the island (more so than some of the other areas that we’ve stayed at).

Thank you to the owners for their quick response in attending to a couple minor issues we had - one being the DVD player not working as well as the smoke alarm.

Within a very short amount of time, we had a new DVD player as well as new smoke alarm delivered to our door. We were very impressed with how quickly these matters were taken care of.

Many thanks for a wonderful stay and we hope to be back again sometime!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Noreen & Drew for the wonderful 5-star review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay despite the minor "hiccups" with the DVD player and smoke alarm. We're pleased that you enjoyed the view & had nice weather during your visit to the island; it truly is a beautiful places to spend time enjoying the outdoor activities that are so plentiful, or simply lounging on the lanai & listening to the surf washing ashore just feet away. We could not have asked for better guests! We really appreciate that you informed us right away when you had a problem, allowing us (& our wonderful island contact - Marvis) to solve the problem quickly. We hope you do return, & if so that you will consider staying with us again. We're continually working to improve our guest's experience & look forward to serving you. Mahalo nui loa & Aloha, Dave & Rita

Convenient location & great space!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for our first time on the island. The location made both trips to the north and south shore reasonable and there was plenty of restaurants around for breakfast and dinner, including a bunch of food trucks which we really enjoyed. The condo was great space for the two of us and everything we needed they had covered.

VERY nice!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a great location. We have enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the waves and the clouds. Easy walk to several really good restaurants and bars. The condo is beautifully maintained, well appointed and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. We particularly appreciated the coffee that was provided. We got in late one night and it is always nice to be able to at least have coffee when you get up. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Value for the Price

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in February 2018. The property is in a fantastic location on the island with central access to North Shore and South Shore activities. The property is exactly as described in the listing. And that view, oh that view! It's spectacular. Once nice surprise is that the sun does not shine into the unit. It does shine on the lanai, but it doesn't reach the windows so the place doesn't heat up on sunny days.

Owner's Response: Mahallo, Wendy, for the wonderful 5-Star review! It's really nice when folks notice the "little things" like how you get all the benefits of a beautiful sunny ocean view without all the heat that often goes along with that view! You were a great guest, and took excellent care of our condo. We really appreciate that, and we really enjoyed having you stay with us. You were a "5-Star guest" in our book!

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit! Having an air conditioner in the bedroom made all the difference for Seattleites used to sleeping in cooler temperatures. Mark the manager was very friendly. The sound of the surf, the relative quiet of.the beach and the mellow fellow residents all worked for us to relax. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well maintained and in a nice area. Very central to start tours from. Mavis the on-site person was nice and helpful. My wife and I have visited Hawaii many times and this ranks up with the best places we’ve stayed. I would happily recommend it and if I visit Kauai again I’ll see if it’s available.

Beachfront property, yet so private! Watch the gorgeous sunrise while sipping a hot cup, and enjoying one of many delectable pastries available from the Passion Bakery just across the street!

Strategically located midway on the island, and on the 'ke ala hele makable' (walking & bicycle) trail along the Kauai East coast makes this property walking distance to lifeguarded beaches, shopping centers, restaurants, pharmacy, water features, hiking, and a short drive to all of the wonderful adventures Kauai has to offer.

Many of the attractions tourists enjoy visiting are on the North and South/West shores of Kauai, while all of the conveniences required make each evening a delight are located near this East side oasis. This is the ideal location to rest between adventures and to start each exciting day from! It's also a perfect spot to 'come home' to after a fun-filled day and simply unwind with a favorite drink on the lanai, or next to the pool.

The coconut market place is a short walk away with shops, restaurants, bars and free hula dancing shows. Breakfast at the Hula Girl on wonderful omelets and specialty pancakes. A farmer's market is available in the parking lot as well, selling local produce, (check for dates and times).

While a car is recommended to see all of the sights on the island, it's easy to spend your entire visit without taking the car out of the parking lot. It's easy taking advantage of all the local offerings, including the sandy beach out front, snorkeling at Lydgate Park, or enjoying paddling adventures on the Wailua River. The Wailua River Park is located nearby, offering a great starting point for hiking, kayak and guided boat tours of the famous fern grotto and hidden falls. Smith's tropical paradise luau is also located here, and offers, in our opinion the most authentic Hawaiian luau experience!
